Battle of the bad pickup lines

spoiler alert: this post makes reference to the July 19 episode on CBC

Well, I'm glad Fiz's nuptials (keep it clean -ed) in the nick worked out. I now pronounce you "Mr & Mrs. Stape". Has a certain ring to it (like a bathtub - ed). You may kiss the guard...er bride. etc etc. But let's talk about something different and by that I mean the cornucopia of bad pickup lines from Graeme Proctor, 'garden doctor' and Gary Windass, 'sprung from the slammer and ready to yammer'. Admittedly, standards are not typically high on the Street but these guys are plumbing Olympic depths (lower, slower, lamer - ed). They're both pretty bad but who is worse? There's only one way to find out: the battle of the bad pickup lines. Are you ready? Let's start round one:


Graeme (to Natasha): "(You) Could have had a sex change. Do you want to go with me?"

Gary (to Michelle): "How's about a smile for starters?"

(Round One goes to Graeme. but they're both in fighting form. Let's move on...)


Graeme: "So what do you say? You and me?"

Gary: "I've always had a thing for brunettes and all"

(OOh, another close one. This one goes to Gary)


Graeme: "Of all the pavements in all the worlds... have you let one off?"

Gary: "I say that you've kept yourself in pretty good nick considering that you've, uh, dropped a sprog and all that."

Another close round, but, well, asking someone if they passed wind as a prelude to an amorous overture? That's the worst pickup line I've ever heard. The judges have made it unanimous. Graeme wins.
